Tyler Perry and girlfriend Gelila Bekele welcome son, Aman

Congratulations to director Tyler Perry and his longtime girlfriend, model and activist Gelila Bekele on the birth of their first child, son Aman Tyler Perry, on Sunday, Nov. 30, PEOPLE reported.

“Mom and baby are happy and healthy. Tyler is so excited,” a source told the magazine and referencing Perry’s own rocky relationship with his dad, added,“he’s over the moon,”

The couple asked the family to donate to Charity Water, an organization dedicated to providing clean water to developing countries, in lieu of gifts for the baby.

UPDATE: Tyler Perry’s girlfriend is 8 months pregnant with a baby boy

Leave it to the Internet sleuths to scope out an undercover pregnancy!
Fans discovered Instagram user Pietro Mourao had posted a photo of himself with Tyler Perry‘s on-again-off-again girlfriend, Ethiopian model and activist Gelila Bekele with the caption:
“She is a good New friend from NYC and she’s 7 months pregnant baby boy!!” 
Mourao has since deleted the photo but not before folks could screen capture that bad boy and circulate it on the interwebs!
Perry hasn’t confirmed the news but it seems quite calculated and well timed given he announced it at his 45th birthday party and he told Steve Harvey when he was 43 that he wanted to have a baby by age 45:

“I know I would be a great father,” Tyler Perry said about possibly having a baby. “I don’t want to work this hard, I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know, that as hard as I’m working — doing 20 hours a day — now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work, I’m enjoying being a bachelor. So eventually I’ll get there … I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years.”

How Conveeeeeeeenient! (wink) 
Well this is looking more and more like confirmation. Good job, nosy people of the Internets!
This reminds me of the time, social media detectives snuffed out Idris Elba‘s make-up artist girlfriend Naiyana Garth‘s Twitter account mention of being pregnant with Elba’s child in October 2013 when she was just weeks pregnant, months before Elba confirmed the news this past January 2014.  The couple welcomed a son this past April. 
Lesson: If you are dating a mega celebrity and get pregnant for one, keep all references to it off of social media because you will get found out! ha!
